[view][talk] The Ocelot is a tameable animal mob that first appeared in Minecraft Snapshot 12w04a. Ocelots only spawns and are found in Jungle Biomes, which were also added in the Snapshot.

Appearance

The Minecraft ocelot is based off of real-life ocelots. They have yellow pelts with black spots, very similar to the real animal. They also have green eyes. The female is bigger than the male in real life.

Behavior

Ocelots are very shy and quick-moving. If a player hits or surprises an ocelot, it will sprint away. Like wolves hunting sheep, ocelots will pounce on unsuspecting chickens. If you approach one too quickly or look around too quickly any nearby ocelots will run away. The player cannot catch one by chasing it. If you stand still while holding Raw Fish, nearby ocelots will slowly walk towards you, wanting the fish.

Taming

You need to be holding raw fish straight, without looking around, not moving around, until an ocelot comes towards you and stops when right at your feet, at which point you feed the ocelot the raw fish by right-clicking. Once tamed, they will turn into a domestic cat and become either tabby, tuxedo-style, or a Siamese in pelt color.

  • Usually it will stare at you for a very long time before tamed. (Still, don't move around.)
  • The player cannot tame an ocelot if fish was fed to it by chasing, cornering, and trapping it, even if the ocelot can eat it this way.
  • Cooked fish cannot tame an ocelot.
  • While it's approaching, never jerk the camera or put your crosshairs on it.

Spawning

Ocelots spawn during the day like passive mobs, except this is only in jungle biomes at certain levels. They also have their own Spawner Egg in Creative Mode, colored a dull yellow with blackish brownish spots.

Trivia

  • Ocelots might despawn. (not tamed cats)
  • Ocelots can't despawn on peaceful.
  • Ocelots are recognized as hostile mobs in the coding, but don't despawn in peaceful, and because of this you can't find them in peaceful.
  • Creepers will run away from ocelots and cats, like if they are scared of cats. This is perhaps their greatest use.
